More Dyeing

I've been dying some more! Dyeing is quite addictive. I have been trying to experiment with color combinations. One thing I need to spend more time on ...is getting the colors to not bleed to much into one another. This is difficult! Because if you don't apply enough dye you have white spots. I think I will try the spoon method on my next batch. I also got this great silk yarn from Dharma and it dyes up beautifully. This will make great surface design material. Also, I have this burnt out silk I dyed. I dyed it in purple and it turned out beautifully. I was thinking I would dye it deep purple because this is the color of royalty. I would like to use this in a journal composition but I am not quite sure how yet.
